Easy to follow trail through the west coast rain forest. Went to both look outs which had beautiful views. Bring water with you and plan 2 1/2 - 3hrs a least. Would bring a picnic next time.

Hiked to the Narrows three times over three years. Once during a super high tide and all three were spectacular experiences.

Is there camping there? I would be in a small tent- is that safe with wildlife in the area? I know not to have food in the tent!

There is no camping there but Egmont is close by as is Klein Lake where my husband and daughter usually camp.
